From HSN Election and Observation, Honduras Solidarity Network
Two members of the Carbon Cooperative, affiliated with the National
Council of Rural Workers (CNTC), were killed last night as they
returned from an election training, as both victims had official
electoral duties for today’s election. They were ambushed by masked
gunmen with high caliper weapons as they returned home on foot. They
died immediately from the shootings.
The incident occurred between 7:30 and 8:00 pm, in the community of
Carbon, in the Cantarranas Municipality. Maria Amparo Pineda Duarte was
the elected President of the Cooperative. Julio Ramon Maradiaga was an
active member. The community is the site of an ongoing land struggle in
the area, and both victims were active members in the LIBRE party.
